"Well the sturgis. Motorcycle rally happening again in a week. And you just gotta imagine the folks or the cdc among others are filled with dread to help explain the new data on the delta verron on joined by dr peter. Hotels co director of the center for vaccine development texas children's hospital dean of the national school tropical medicine are bill collars medicine and author of preventing the next pandemic vaccine diplomacy in a time of anti-science. All right doctor who does. Here's here's the thing about. The province town study is is that i felt like they're kind of two ways for interpreted one is like. Wow there is a full outbreak among vaccine people. We haven't really seen this before but also this was an incredible stress. Test of the vaccine's efficacy in preventing serious illness. And it held up remarkably well. Is that a fair characterization. Yeah absolutely look these. Vaccines are still very robust. In terms of the way they were designed. I mean the original design of all of these vaccines that came out of operation. Warp speed. Last year was to stop symptomatic illness and then there are still doing that. Originally was ninety five percent. Now it's about down to eighty eight percents for the pfizer by tech vaccine the two doses and a much higher Way over ninety five percent of protecting against hospitalizations and deaths so if you're vaccinated you're almost certainly not going to get very sick or lose your life from from covert nineteen the the idea that these vaccines could also stop ace. Symptomatic transmission was something that came out after the vaccines were released. Their emergency use. And it was studies in israel and the uk showing. Hey in addition to stop being severe symptomatic illness in symptomatic. Guess what it's also stopping a symptomatic transmission because the the antibodies are getting into the nose and mouth and stopping virus shedding. That means then we could take off masks and and if we're vaccinated we don't need to be tested anymore. So the only thing that's really dropped out and they even that's not completely as second performance feature because the delta variant of produces so much more virus and even that may be fixed later on by a third immunization potentially so this is not time to despair if you're vaccinated the ones that we have to despair are those are the unvaccinated of course. And that's what we're now seeing where i live in the southern united states we're seeing lots of unvaccinated young people now going into the hospital even some pediatric intensive care unit. So the overwhelming message is we have to vaccinate the south and we have to vaccinate the mountain west states where very few adolescence and young adults are vaccinated in order to present prevent real catastrophe. As as the school start opening in the south in just a couple of weeks. So there's there's there's a question that an outstanding question well let me follow up on the province town question. I've seen some people today and not just like rondos but some people with public health background saying the province downs. A very special case. I mean the the someone pointed out. It's it's eighty five percent men more or less it's an incredibly intensive. I mean talk about designing a super spreader. There's a lot of drink. A lot of tight quarters. There's a lot of hookups. There's a lot of people being very close to each other that this is not like the most representative of delta spreading more broadly in not as an intensive intensively kind of virus friendly environment as july fourth weekend province town. What do you think of that. Yeah actually this this report that came out in morbidity mortality weekly reports the. Mwr didn't really tell me anything. I didn't know we already knew that there ain't productive number. This virus is between five and eight is highly transmissible for me. The most important thing confirmed is that you're not going to die if you get a few get vaccinated even against the delta varian unless very special circumstances those who are on immunosuppressive therapy or a couple of other factors so i think you know the way it was written that seventy four percent were vaccinated remember. There are thousands and thousands of vaccinated going through providence down but is one of the highest vaccination rates anywhere and the overwhelming number of people are not getting sick. I guess the question then becomes on this mask guidance. Right i mean i guess. Part of part of the argument. You're making is. They're saying look if i'm vaccine. People around me are vaccinated and the province town. Example is an example of the fact that you know that it can spread. You can have an outbreak among people that are vaccinated and in the end not have calamitous results that you would have sort of an unvaccinated than then why why this sort of new masking guidance in indoor areas while the reason is is this because the the vaccines are not as strong and against against delta in terms of that second performance feature of symptomatic vira shedding. It means that if you are then going into a setting like that then coming home to family members who are vulnerable such as little kids or or. those are immuno-compromised you could potentially bring that virus virus home with you. And that's the reason for wearing masks so the truth is many of us. Were vaccinated are still wearing masks when when you go into your settings anyway so i don't think it's going to be that much of a change. In behavior guidance we need right now is for specialty populations those of extreme age or those around immunosuppressive therapy. Do we need that third immunization to keep that small percentage of breakthrough hospitalizations in ch- in t- in intact and we'll this then also stop virus shedding and what about the people who got on a single dose j. j. vaccine. Should they get a second dose. Yeah we should note. That taliban in israel has announced policy for those of a very vast age to get a third shot booster. I think it's the first country That's doing that and that that's something also look for as we go forward. Dr peter hotels clarifying always. Thank you. thank you next.

Biden ups vaccine goal to 1.5 million shots a day, says vaccine to be widely available by spring
"Big announcements about vaccine distributions from the biden administration. Dr peter hotels who specializes in molecular virology microbiology at baylor. College of medicine says that the newly increased goal of one and a half million vaccine shots per day. The old goal was a million shots a day. Now president biden's has a million and a half shots per days. The goal dr houghton says even that might be enough. He's now arguing in the pages on the op-ed pages of the washington. Post that to get closer to what we need. We need to three million doses a day. How possible is that. And why is that the right number to aim at star peter. Hotels is co director of the center for vaccine development at texas children's hospital. He's dina the national school. Tropical medicine at baylor dr hotels. It's a real honor to have you back with us tonight. Thank you for making time. Thanks rachel great to be here so these are big numbers. And it's hard to sometimes conceptualize what they mean. I know that we just got to the point as a country where we can do a million point one. Maybe one point two million shots day. Why do you say that that number the number we need to be aiming at is actually triple that we need to be up to three million a day. I first of all. I think it's really important not to diminish the the accomplishments of the biden administration. We've now got a national plan in place. We have a national vaccination strategy. We didn't have that before so In a matter of a week we've already got a national vaccine plan in place that's so absolutely important. So i give a lot of credit to the biden administration. I'm a little concerned. However that we're not picking up the pace fast enough. The reason i say that is our estimates. Indicate that in order to stop virus transmission remember. There's two things these vaccines do they keep you out of the hospital. In the icu. But if enough americans get vaccinated we could actually hold virus transmission potentially and we think that number is around three quarters of the us population of two hundred and forty million people. Most of the vaccines are two doses. So that's about half a billion immunizations that we have to take care of. And i want to do that by the beginning of the summer. Not the end of the suburb. Erase ahead of the virus variants. So the simple back of the envelope. Numbers are five hundred million over five months. That's a hundred million a month three million a day so we're only a striving for half of that and it's not good enough because we have the according to the centers for disease control now the uk variant may be the dominant variant in the united states by march or april the transmissions. Go way back even up way back up even though we're down by about twenty thirty percent now from where we are. That's only temporary. I think we're in the eye of the hurricane in those numbers are going to go back up. So i feel like even as ambitious as the plan is the biden plan is still not ambitious enough and we can have to vaccinate of half a billion people by the summer in order to prevent that terrible number of six hundred thousand. That's that's the bottom line. I want to save

"In the end. It came down to this question. Based on the totality of scientific evidence available to the benefits of the vaccine outweigh its risks for use in individuals sixteen of age and older shortly after five thirty eastern time tonight outside independent panel that advises the fda on vaccine safety they answered. That question voted. Yes and that paves the way for the fda to give emergency use authorization for the pfizer vaccine in the us. The final green light from the fda could come within days. If not sooner a. I should note though that while the approval vote from the advisory committee was wasn't overwhelming wasn't unanimous. The vote was seventeen in favor. to four. against with one member abstaining and none of the member of the advisory had an opportunity to explain their votes but at least two with a no vote said specifically objected to including sixteen and seventeen year olds in the authorization. They argued in part that <hes>. Very few people in that age group had participated in the vaccine trial so that was one thing that they were concerned about but nevertheless the vote was seventeen to four the pfizer vaccine has now crossed this critical hurdle. The fda should follow the advice of this panel. That means things should start moving quickly within twenty four hours of the fda giving sign off pfizer says it plans to ship roughly two point nine million doses within the us each state's allocation of that two point nine million <hes>. We'll be based on its population size. And then there will of course be other shipments thereafter but there are worries on the horizon. already about supply. One speiser delivers the first hundred million doses within the us. That's enough to vaccinate fifty million people. The country might not get another batch until next june. And that's because the trump administration last summer inexplicably decided to pass on an offer to secure more doses and other countries snatched them up instead. Is the washington post. Explain this week. The the eu the european union japan have both staked claim to an even larger portion of pfizer doses than the us has americans will have to wait as those countries receive shares of their initial orders while supplies remain limited.

"Of the national school, Tropical Medicine at Baylor University, Dr Peter hotels. I hope I'm pronouncing your name correctly that hotel getting the name, correct. You did a perfectly. Thank you, sir. So I got my measles vaccine is born in nineteen fifty eight I just got it last week. I'm healthcare providers. I probably should get too, right? Well, you know, if you win the fifty eight there's a possibility that you did get a first generation measles vaccine, in fact, I also got a boost through over the weekend as as well. So we share that income here figured feel. Did you feel nothing zero nothing? Nothing nothing. Nothing at all. Yeah. All my gravest fear with this measles outbreak. Is that it enters into our homeless populations here, which are approaching on your sixty seventy thousand people, all with extremely debilitated mental health and physical conditions? God knows what sort of vaccination history. They have if that happens. I don't underst-. I don't see how we contain this thing. That's. You've got multiple vulnerable populations in the LA area. And of course, the other big one you worry about our infants under the age of twelve months, not yet old enough to get back sedated. So now if you're a parent your mother, and living in the LA area, you've got to be concerned about bring your infant out in public spaces out the WalMart about how your chemotherapy or transplant or something. I mean I mean there's, there's no end and that's why we work so hard to prevent measles coming back. I mean the problem with measles. It's one of the most contagious viruses. We know it has a reproductive number of between twelve and eighteen. That means if a single individual gets measles on average twelve eighteen other unvaccinated individuals. We'll get it. Especially infants almost everything you mentioned and, and, and it and measles. Can unravel public health gains pretty quickly because it's so contagious. And that's why when episodes epidemic starts, they take months off and time to get them back under control. So be we saw this in Washington state. We're seeing this play out in New York now. So our, our vaccine infrastructure is very fragile and requires ongoing input to prevent these terrible. Measles, outbreaks from happening. Do you have to sneeze on somebody or no? Does it just really great? It's so contagious virus can linger on surfaces or a near for two hours. Airplanes are mess. And, and this is what happened in UCLA and Cal State. Los Angeles, the quarantine student was in the library, and, and so anybody who walked through that library space over certain periods of time now is their risk of getting measles. And so the way we prevent this vaccinating as many people as possible, but the anti vaccine movement has spread massive misinformation about the risk of measles and other vaccines. And, and in parallel, they spread misinformation about measles itself. They say it's, it's good for you. They ignore the inconvenient truth that up until a couple of decades ago. Measles, was the single leading killer of children globally at two and a half. And a half million in nineteen eighty. Million. Yeah, it's being measles and stuff elitest. And it's not just steps as permanent injury deafness. So it's measles as bad actor. And so it can be totally prevented with a simple vaccine vaccine has been around forever. Completely save both you and I have subjected ourselves to, to protect ourselves. Thankfully, my kids have had both facts. The vaccine. I mean I. Just get if it's not gonna hurt me just to get it again. You know. Vaccine movement is moved into southern Europe. So Frances disaster Italy's disaster Greece's a disaster. So if you have plans for summer European travel that, that's, that's another reason to get back. I'm concerned about the expense of getting all these titles if people are concerned as a risk, they're going in, and getting revalidated, isn't that achieve less expensive way to do this. I'm actually the CDC hasn't really said it as such. But, you know, for me the, the safety profile of the measles, vaccine is so good. The MR vaccine just get vaccinate. That's why. Most cost effective way to do whatever they do break. Your little talk also about some of the other stuff, we're seeing here until the California you don't mind I don't know, if you're prepared talk about it, but we are because of the complete breakdown of civilization, the lack of attention to the sanitation, and of course health, the mental health of the people living on the streets. We're getting massive outbreak of non Berkeley's, af bay to berkey Laos's typhus and but the virtuous stuff, the FBI is just it's exploded and no one's about it yet. They will soon enough. And I'm wondering if you have any theories about what follows the typhus, because they're doing nothing to Cretaceous, these epics. So we're coming into the summer months, and I'm wondering without me leading the witness, but theories about what's coming next. But what you suspect might come next. We'll take a little break. Okay. Okay. We're talking to Dr Peter hotels. You follow him at Pete hotels. H O T, easy is dean of the national school of Tropical Medicine. Baylor University is leeann tweeden.

"C. Peter hotels team the national school Tropical Medicine at Baylor University for the break, I was challenging after hotels to tell us what he thinks her next how these epidemics you're gonna play out here in southern California in an environment with people breaking down in the streets. No sanitation massive rodent blooms, I mean hotels, the roads of taken over southern California. What are we in for next? So the actually the subject of not this most recent book, but my last book, I'm so most recent book is called vaccines. Do not cause Rachel's autism 'cause most of the parent of an adult daughter with autism. Then actual disabilities. Explain why there's absolutely no link between vaccines and autism. But the the book that I wrote before then is actually called blue marble health and innovative plan to fight diseases of the poor amid wealth, and it really does a deep dive looking at the United States defined that twelve million Americans live with. Poverty related neglected disease. So that we have these extraordinary pockets of poverty, and even though we call them neglected tropical diseases their first and foremost diseases of poverty, and we're finding what spend a tropical disease in pockets in California in in Texas, and it's been very difficult to raise awareness about these diseases. We've had a lot of success getting people to care about disease of the poorest of the poor in Africa, Asia and Asia. But when I talk about diseases of poverty in the US, the like the lights go out, and it's been very challenging and frustrating. That's why I was figuring. It wasn't going to be until people heard diseases that have pedantic proportions qualities to them and vectors to to send them out into the communities that magically start to pay attention. Typhus I thought would get people's attention. It's gonna be a big typhus summer and doesn't seem to bother people. I thought our Scindia Mike get their attention because I figured that was next given the massive rodent population. We have. Yeah. And the other thing that we're seeing which is quite interesting in in an awful way. Is we're seeing the soup. We're seeing the the confluence of these infectious diseases with underlying diabetes, hypertension. So for instance, the people that are getting very sick from debris Laos's in Texas those with underlying diabetes or those danke fever those underlying hypertension. So it's creating these new co morbidity that we really haven't seen before. So it's we're in a new normal right now between the return of axiom preventable diseases and the emergence of these neglected tropical diseases, which I think is occurring as a confluence of of combination of pockets of poverty together with rapid urbanization, unchecked organization, human migrations, and we have a big piece of climate change to this as well. Yeah, we get we get stuff for the people don't medically unanimous time with us. We get lots of cicis coast. We get Borelli ah. We get the the story. Of course, we get what's the other one like Borelli the shaggy disease. Physios fever. All this stuff. And it's trench something that they were talking about. This is why we this is why we created their national school of Tropical Medicine recognizing that these diseases are here now, and the old concept of developed versus developing countries is Morphing all all condoms are rising and they're leaving behind a bottom segment of society. And and we've got to address those disease. I it's just it's so frustrating, southern California. Because a lot of it right now is the result of unwillingness. I well, I don't know incompetence and part of our government to intervene and just sanitation and things that would make a difference for people housing sanitation. A big problem that we've got these social determine so we call them like poverty and poor housing. But also, we do not really do a lot of active surveillance for these diseases. That is we don't go into communities that we think might be affected and actually look for these diseases. You have to look for them because. Sometimes their their symptoms could be masked or not really a parent. So for instance, a lot of heart disease that somebody comes into the physician referred to a cardiology with heart disease. Cardiologists doesn't think this could be shaggy disease. So in the LA area, you have a physician that's specifically looking for a shaggy disease, which is a parasitic infection of the heart. And so we need to do more of this. We've now tried to work with Senator Cory booker's office. He's taken an interest in these diseases to pass legislation where we start really doing surveillance and taking these diseases on and in a substantive way. 'cause they're incredible health disparities among the worst and chicken I can never pronounce her. I took of young girl that coming up our way. Well, we are viruses transmitted by mosquitoes. So they they come in group, so Zeka danke chicken ganja all transmitted by eighties. Egypt. I'm USC ios. We're getting that. Southern california. That's that's right. So and the we we've always had quite encephalitis and all that good stuff and West Nile. But that's all coming this summer. I'm very concerned about this summer. I'm telling you, we have loud things to break down to the point. Right. Think we've read some critical mass, right? I don't understand how we don't avoid a very dramatic summer of infectious diseases. Well, it's sure not only in California. It's an a big belt going across the American southwest into into the Gulf Coast state. So this is vulnerable part of the country. And as I like to say the United States is now a disease in democ country. Why can't deny the fact that we have a lot of immigration coming up from the border to and probably. We saw the man the parasites they ask this is Chicago's this stuff coming. I try to make the point because people are quick to jump on immigration. I try to make the point that we have action transmission of these diseases here. It's not only people bringing them in across the southern border that with that the conditions because of climate change in poverty, we've got a going transmission of these diseases. So they're for instance with shots. He's up to ten percent of the dogs are infected and the dogs are not slipping in cross the border from El Salvador in Mexico. It's evidence that we have ongoing transmission here called sleeping sickness CC. Fly that's related, that's African Japan. Shaggy diseases American Trapans. It's. Wanna sleep all the time. I never saw. But but thank you so much time. This appreciate their website. You want people to just go to the national school of Tropical Medicine website or you can follow my Twitter just at Peter hotels. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me all the best.
